Now that dry weather can be expected and danger
from fire at all times, the following ten rules for the pre
vention of fire should be observed by all citizens. Their
observance would contribute greatly to reducing fire losses
to a minimum:
1. Remove all dry grass and weeds from around
barns, garages, fences, etc. Never build bonfires on
2. Burn all oily rags. Do not leave them lying around
as there is danger of spontaneous combustion fire.
3. Remove and dispose o f all rubbish and other
waste material from the premises.
4. Provide yourself with an approved type of incin
erator. That is the only safe way to burn rubbish and
other waste materials.
5. Chimneys should be cleaned and examined once
each year, especially in using coal or briquettes. Many
fires each year are caused by defective chimneys and by
sparks flying on shingle roofs.
6. Do not use gasoline to clean garments or gloves
in the house. Do that kind o f work in the open air away
from the fire.
7. Keep an improved fire extinguisher in the house
for emergency use. It is better to be safe than sorry.
8. Do not use flexible gas hose to connect gas heat
ers or stoves. Use solid pipe connections only.
9. Co-operate with the fire department by making
your building safe against fire; by removing the cause
o f fire.
10. Never throw away a match or cigar or cigarette
butt until you know the fire is out.

The average man would perhaps resent the sugges
tion that someone else does his thinking and dictates his
opinion. But when we look into the matter a little, it be
comes evident that in more important relations o f life;
very few have any marked independence o f thought or
Two o f the outstanding phases o f the average per
sons’s individuality are his religion and politics. Does he
do his own thinking about these? Hardly.
At least nine out o f ten are republicans, democrats,
socialists, Methodists, Catholics or what not because their
fathers or mothers were. The same is almost equally true
with respect to their attitudes toward other questions
about which there may be an honest difference of opin
ion. If it is not a parent who exerts the dominating influ
ence in these matters, it is usually some other person who
is blindly followed through faith in his ability and judg
ment. That person in turn probably gets his ideas from
The fact that this is true should lead us to be more
tolerant o f the beliefs and opinions of others who do not
agree with us. Had we been born under the same influ
ences as they, we would have had the same views as a rule.
Few persons, indeed, are independent enough in
thought and action to break away from the influences o f
heredity and environment.
Estacada can have a real Fourth o f July celebration
this year, if the people o f the city and surrounding com
munities will lend their whole-hearted co-operation. Un
